Jardin Majorelle

This is one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. That's why I'm posting so many pictures of it :)

Jardin Majorelle, in Marrakesh, has the most stunning combination of vibrant colors (bright blues, lavendar, yellow, terra cotta) and at the same time is profoundly peaceful. I wish I could wander in on a daily basis! Hopefully you can all relax a bit while you enjoy the pictures.

A bit of history if you're interested: Jardin Majorelle was opened to the public by Jacques Majorelle in 1947. He died in 1962 and then in 1980, Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berg purchased and restored the garden and ensured it would remain open for visitors.
